    Setup has been redone following a move. Did a little more work into external cable organization. Enjoy!

    Hi all. I built my first PC back in January, coming from a MacBook. I hate Windows with all my heart (should have Hackintosh'd it - one day I will) but the build itself has been awesome. I know Mac hardware is extremely overpriced for what you're getting in comparison to what you can build yourself, but the OS is really so much better. Anyway, I never got a mouse/keyboard until yesterday (was using cheapo Logitech mouse and no-name keyboard), and they're what sparked me to change around my setup a little bit today (and I guess finally sign up on MMO-Champ and start posting about it, lol).

    I suck at keybinding so I got the Razer Naga 2012 in hopes of it making me a better player. (Question: Is there a way to have the logo always stay on as opposed to keep pulsing? Also: I'm a little sad I missed out on the blue Naga because it would've matched better.)

    As for the keyboard, I always wanted to try the Lycosa, and when I was in Best Buy yesterday to get the Naga, there it was on the shelf. It used to be impossible to get in-store where I live, so when I saw it I had to get it just to try it. The reasons it appeals to me is because of the slim, Apple-like keys, nice rubber feel, illuminated keys, and iTunes controls (something I was used to having on a Mac). However, I am fully aware of how much of a piece of crap it actually ends up being for most people. And I have to say, with less than 5 hours of use, the rubber keys already look horrible. I'll probably end up returning it within Best Buy's 30-day policy, which is fine, because I kind of expected to anyway (I'd rather not have to, of course).

    Now for my poor quality iPhone pictures. This is my new little corner setup (that is more ideal for watching TV, not that I do often). For reference, I used to have the desk under the shelf on the wall. I think I'm going to like this better.






    P.S. My chair is ancient. It must be almost 12 years old. Recommendations are definitely welcome.

    Post it with spaces and I'll edit them in.
    And FWIW, a piece of hardware in itself can never make you a better player, just give you a hardware advantage or compensate for poor keybinding-abilities

    I suck at regular keybinding, therefore making me "worse" than I should be and for the last 5 years or so, limiting me to mostly healing only (with the help of HealBot, keybinding is only a second priority thing). So, if I'm able to master the Naga play-style and can actually play bear/cat the right way like I've always wanted to, wouldn't that mean the Naga made me better? It is compensating for my poor keybinding abilities like you said, yes, but isn't that then also making me a better player because I'm now doing everything properly (assuming I already know how my class and encounters work)?

    Am I the only one that uses a ton of space between the desk and the keyboard/mouse? I always see people here with their keyboard and mice on the edge of their desk. I don't find that comfy at all Oo

    Here's how much space I have between end of desk and mouse:



    Am I just imagining this? lol

    I actually agree with you, especially for the mouse arm. I wish my desk was deeper for that reason, but sometimes I do move my skull and monitor so I can push the keyboard/mouse back more to play like that. I mostly do this when I sit with my chair tightly sandwiching me between the desk.

    Edit: No, I don't have armrests. I know that's why and plan to get a new chair that does have them.

    Do you not have armrests on your chair? That might be why maybe.
